Park City Marriott location question

I have been to Park City once but don't recall the exact location of the Marriott units there. Is one better situated than another. Trying to make plans for skiing in 2009. I believe Summit Watch is in town (with ski access)and Mountainside is on the mountain? I think there is also a thirrd location further out
Thanks for the help

Yes. Summit Watch is in the heart of Park City just across the street from Park City Mountain's town lift. Mountainside is on the mountain/base of Park City Mountain. There is also a Marriott hotel a few miles from the base. I prefer mountainside, just because it is right there.

Only SW and MS are timeshares, the other is a hotel.

Both SW and MS are aweseom and I would lean towards MS for pure ski-in/out, but SW is on main street and has all the apri-ski action within walking distance.

Mountainside is right on the slopes, but we actually liked Summit Watch because it was so easy to walk right up the main street. The walk seemed a lot farther from Mountainside to the shops and restaurants, and even taking the bus (waiting) was really cold when we were there.

We enjoyed both though!
